By NCVER Statistical report 12 December 2019 1837-1477

Description

VET student outcomes 2019 presents information on the outcomes of students who completed their vocational education and training (VET) in Australia during 2018. The figures are derived from the National Student Outcomes Survey, which is an annual survey of students who were awarded a qualification (graduates), or who completed at least one subject and left the VET system without obtaining a qualification (subject completers). Summary information is presented on students’ reason for training, employment outcomes, satisfaction with training and further study outcomes. Data on the main reason for not continuing with the training are available for subject completers.
